H.A.M.K.: Higher Education with a Professional Profile

About the Program

The Construction Engineering degree programme allows students to focus on structural engineering or environmental technology. At H.A.M.K., structural engineering focuses on steel construction. Steel Constructions studies include mechanics, mathematics, technical drawings and CAD. Understanding of the structures, and 3-D visualization skills will develop during the studies.

During the studies (Steel Constructions) it is possible to achieve credits required by A-class structural engineer qualifications:

  • Structural mechanics – 16 credits
  • Concrete construction and technology – 8 credits
  • Concrete structure engineering – 8 credits
  • Steel structure engineering – 8 credits
  • Wood structure engineering – 12 credits
  • Construction physics – 5 credits

Demand for international construction experts is increasing continuously in international construction projects in Finland and abroad. In addition to houses, construction engineering is applicable in our built-up environment to traffic corridors and water and waste management, for example.

The tasks of engineering graduates may be related to the construction of new premises and to the repair of existing structures in engineering or project management in Finland and abroad. Daily tasks may involve design, product development, supervision in an official capacity, or trading. Construction professionals constantly monitor developments in the sector, they are familiar with the latest design and production techniques and can manage modern management techniques, and they are capable of applying them to practical situations at work.

Construction engineers must have a view of the entire construction process in addition to their speciality. Work requires, in addition to professional knowledge management, problem-solving abilities, financial thinking, management skills, cooperation skills, IT skills and language skills.

A degree completed in English provides construction engineers with good language skills and international know-how, making it possible to work anywhere in the world.

There are additional possibilities to study abroad by completing a Double Degree, partly at H.A.M.K. and partly at Danish VIA University College. Students can also choose to study a part of their degree in Finnish in H.A.M.K.'s Finnish- language construction engineering programme.

Study modes

Keeping students central is our principle in everything we do. In Construction engineering, students will study together in weekdays Monday to Friday between 8-16. Studying is equivalent to working at a job: the student is present and works together with others in a diverse way. Daily learning situations could be:

  • Traditional classroom learning.
  • Laboratory work and exercises.
  • Learning by doing practical exercises, projects etc.
  • Learning at the workplace – projects from working life, an internship etc.
  • E-learning at home or anywhere.
This school offers programs in:
  • English
